i just need to vent and it's my blog so i can do that

For the last 2 1/2 months, I've been working out every single day (okay, not Sundays) but six days a week for an hour to two hours at  a time and have not lost one. single. pound. 

I've actually gained four. 

Here's what I do:
plyometrics, power sculpt, cycling, weight lifting, step n' sculpt, and I run to and from the gym pushing a double jogger.
Shouldn't I be losing weight by now?
I'm starting to think it was a blessing that I burned 2 out of 3 batches of these chocolate chip cookies.

But seriously, if you remember to take them out after ten minutes, they are simply perfection.

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers that have influenced my life!
{ my mom }
{ my aunt cindy }
{ anthony's mommy }
{ my beautiful grandma -in purple }

And a very special thanks to my smart, funny, crazy babies 
for coming into our lives and making me a mommy.
I love them so much, my heart could burst!
{ landon- 6 days }
{ harper- newborn }

Happy Mother's Day to all!

P.S. Anthony took Landon to get me a present yesterday.
He suggested a yellow toy car, a red toy car, and Spiderman toys.

terrible twos x2

This little boy has it in for me.
My "sweet" and "mellow" Harper is now 18 months,
 and I fear he's hitting the terrible twos a bit early.
I'm sad.
But hopeful...
since Landon turned three a few weeks ago, maybe he'll be out of the terrible twos now.
Oh, and this is him eating a booger. 
Quit gagging,
you know you ate yours, too.

mother goose is pretty amazing

Remember this post?
Well, those same two baby geese are now practically teenagers, and it's only been a few weeks!
It's kind of sad to see them grow up so fast.
look what Spring has brought us again,
new baby geese!
Seven of them, I tell you.
 They were so cute trying to snuggle up under Mother Goose during a ferociously windy day.
I thought to myself she's got her hands full (or wings, rather).
How does she keep track of them all?
 Soon after, I got a little taste of what it was like to take care of a large bunch of little ones.
I had two girls about the same ages as my  boys from Friday to Sunday, the whole weekend!
It was crazy, but we had a blast.
And having girls around to dress up and play with was the funnest!
*a very special thanks to Aunt Cindy and Uncle Greg for setting up these pools.

P.S. Please, continue to keep six year old Jacob Wells' family in your prayers. It's been a little over a week since he passed away, and I cannot imagine how they must be feeling. Here's the article written about Sweet Jacob in our local newspaper.
